I have not clicked on anything for it to flag. The process to download with internetdownloadmanager is this: Go to list of zips, Right Click on page > download all. IDM scans all links on the page and asks you where to download all files. I'm going to assume IDM and other download managers must be parsing all HTML links on the page including the "Flag as porn" link when you download all files. This is still not me or anyone purposely flagging the archive, I've been downloading from it randomly for the last 2 weeks.

If this comes down to download managers falsely triggering Violence and Porn flags then there is a whole list of innocent people that deserve an apology.

Your screenshots show the flag icon in red indicating that the collection has been flagged.

It's strange that you've not intentionally done this.

I wonder if someone from archive.org could comment on this.

Redirecting to a seperate page with a captcha before being able to submit a report would be a quick fix for false flags, but yes a reply from someone more knowledgable would be helpful.

Seems the false flags have been reset somehow within the last hour or two with no explanation.
